Monday mornings with Mary - Inner Sanctuary

Perhaps nature senses the longing that is in us, the restlessness that never let us settle.  She takes us into the tranquility of her stillness if we visit her. We slip into her quiet contemplation and inhabit for a while the depth of ancient belonging. Somehow we seem to become one with the rhythm of the universe.  Our longing is purified and we gain strength to come back to life refreshed, and refine our ways of belonging in the world.

John O'Donohue - Eternal Echoes

Please join in Mornings with Mary with
Rebecca at Recuerda mi Corazon - links are available on my blog.

A blessed week to you!


  1. I can always count on you, Hettienne...
    you always share the perfect passage for my day.
    This quiet, thoughtful post
    was just what I needed today.

  2. That paragraph by John O'Donohue is haunting and lovely. Reading it, the words slip in and out of one's spirit like a breeze blowing through tall grasses, bending them back, letting them go. It affected me that way and I felt it was beautiful. And your Mary, decorated with Mother Nature's offerings, is perfect. Have a wonderful day Hettienne.
